This error indicates that there is a scanner motor error. Try and remove the error by following these steps: Press MENU *,2,8,6,4. The machine beeps for approximately 1 second and will display "MAINTENANCE" on the screen, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which the machine is ready to accept entry from the keys. Now you are inside the simulation, Press 01 to reset the error status. After that press 99 to exit the simulation.

- Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
- Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

If the error comes back call Brother support, here are the contact details:

What is machine error 71 How to fix it?


Error 71 on a MFC-9600 means there is a problem with the motor inside the printer.
You can try unplugging and waiting a few minutes, then plugging back in again.
If it is still coming up with the error, if its still under warranty Brother will replace/repair it for you, otherwise you will have to pay Brother for the repair cost.

Mfc9880 machine error 71


error 71 is a problem with the polygon motor which is in the laser unit. This error usually means that you would need the laser unit replaced.
I'd suggest calling out an engineer.

Machine Error 17 Brother


I am assuming that you error listed above is actually a "Machine Error 71" not a 17 as their is no such 17 error. The error 71 is a problem with the Polygon Mirror (laser scanner). The scanner is going to require replacement. The part is available at Seattle Platen, Dale 1-800-221-2388.

Hope that helps you.
